Avery Ward

We are delighted to announce our volunteer of the month for March 2022: Avery Ward! Here’s a message from her:

I am so honoured to be chosen as volunteer of the month but even more valuable than this recognition is the time I spend each week reading with the children. When I was little, I was always one of those kids who would stay up after my bedtime with a flashlight under my covers trying to get in a few more pages before my mom forced me to go sleep. This love of reading from a young age endowed me with countless skills for the rest of my life! During my time as a volunteer at I hope to pass my love of reading and all the great lessons that come with it on to a younger generation. And I’m happy to report that the children I see each week are brighter and more enthusiastic about reading than I could ever hope for!
